Near a Christmas tree
children hope for miracles—
some things never change.

and hoping he finds them soon—
a lone vaquero

A little blue shrine
Is guarding the grave;
It stands as a sign
Of hope that all crave.

a wounded dolphin
trying to swim to safety—
the wound proves fatal

on a parade float
the faintest glimmer of light
from a yellow rose
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
impartial jury—
the prisoner’s only hope
for clearing his name

Three Virtues

To submit one’s hope
to her who bore the Baby
is not a lost cause.
 
She will instruct you
in the tangled ways of love—
you have naught to fear.
 
Finding faith renewed
is the highlight of her way—
every pilgrim knows.
